Senior Spotlight: Logine Said


Mari Robin Tharin, Secretary

This week’s senior spotlight shines on one of the class of 2023’s most unforgettable members: Logine Said. In sixth grade, Logine joined us at RMA all the way from Egypt! She describes herself as hilarious, ambitious, and caring, and we have all seen these qualities. Logine and her best friend Sarah keep us entertained every day with their hilarious commentary, but Logine can also be serious. She is one of the most goal-driven people I know, and she is always willing to listen to others or offer a helping hand. One additional thing I have always admired about Logine is how she is never afraid to be herself and will always give her honest opinion.

Wherever you see Logine, you will likely see her partner in crime, Sarah David (their friendship is iconic) who comments about Logine, “Logine has become more than a best friend since the day we met; she has become the sister I have always wanted, and to say that she is independent and smart is an understatement, as she is always driven to go above and beyond in everything she does. I am thankful she was put into my life, as I absolutely have no idea what I would do without her.” 

As Sarah says, Logine is extremely driven. Her strong sense of self-motivation has led her to take on a challenging schedule for her senior year consisting of Honors Calculus, Honors English, AP Psychology, and AP Environmental Science, with her electives being Music and Ceramics. Her hard work and dedication over the years have earned her several awards: Academic Excellence in Honors Modern European History, Highest Academic Average in Advanced English 10, and Academic Excellence in Algebra 2. In addition to academics, Logine stays involved at school by being an active member of Key Club, National Honor Society, Stronger Together, Kindness Club, and Anatomy Club. Not only is she a great student, but being in class with Logine is always fun and entertaining; she always has a funny anecdote to share from her day!

Outside of school, Logine stays very active in the community. She is selfless and loves to give back by participating in various community service activities. Logine shared that she especially enjoyed Gatekeepers Work Camp and seeing the happiness of those she served. She also loves spending time with those she loves and going shopping (especially at Target and TJ Maxx). Logine no longer plays, but she was an asset to the RMA soccer team and volleyball team for several years throughout Middle and Upper School. It is evident that Logine is extremely dedicated to her school, community, friends, and family!

As for future plans, Logine has applied to Meredith, NC State, ECU, UNCW, and Campbell. Although she has not yet made her decision, Logine has several great options and she is sure to excel anywhere! As of right now her major is undecided, but she will most likely major in business. Logine has the drive and the personality to accomplish anything she sets her mind to, and we are confident that she will shine next year! She will definitely be missed here at RMA (especially in Dr. Wells’s and Mrs. Helms’s rooms), but we are so excited for Logine!


Read below to learn about Logine:

  1. What is your favorite movie? Breakfast at Tiffany’s 
  2. Describe your dream vacation.  Well, I went on my dream vacation this summer, and it was going back to Egypt with all of my family and going to places and beaches that I remembered being so great. Other than that, I want to travel to Greece because I would love to see all the beautiful places and beaches and just love to see other people’s cultures.  
  3. Who is your role model? My role model is my mom because she manages to impress me with everything she does and how she handles any challenge that comes her way with ease. 
  4. What is something nobody knows about you? That I am really OCD about keeping my room clean, or something that most people know (but not everyone) is that I have a cross tattoo that I got when I was 5 for religious and cultural reasons. 
  5. If you were trapped on a deserted island, what three things would you bring? Water, food, and my best friend
  6. What will you miss about RMA? I will miss the free candy I get from the senior room. 
  7. What is your funniest story at RMA? The thermostat blowing up in Dr. Wells’s room 
  8. What is one piece of advice you’d give to an incoming freshman? The biggest thing that I would say is not to procrastinate. It is way better to get things over with; continuing to procrastinate will only make it a bad habit for you. 
  9. What class would you take again, and why? Ceramics because I love seeing my ideas come to life in a 3D form.
